Japan has environmental preservation technology, but the cost of the fossil fuel project is the highest in the G20. Why is eco-conscious manufacturing not an ongoing marketing strategy in Japan? Green consumers are not growing up in Japan. Furthermore, Life Cycle Assessment thinking has not been established in product development. Consumers need to consider manufacturing longevity from the cradle to the grave. We must recognize that the potential of renewable energy in Japan is high, and renewable resources should be utilized.
Key words: green consumers, G20, fossil fuel project, life cycle assessment(LCA), eco-conscious manufacturing
